like john kennedy inspiring a new generation to public service. so i think probably it will be more on the inspirational level than the state of the union which will be much more specific about issues. >> i know today there's more significance than usual because it is mlk, jr., holiday. he'll use two bibles. one that abe lincoln used and also what martin luther king, jr. used. touch on the significance of that today. >> the president has a keen sense of history and understand the significance of being inaugurated on martin luther king day because of his status as an african-american president has inspirational value for many people. so it is significant. using the bible that lincoln used is very significant at this particular moment. it should be a good inauguration. it certainly is a lot less cold than it was four years ago. apparently it was brutal. hopefully his speech will inspire people to move beyond talking about michelle obama's bangs or something like that and focus on the country and public policy. >> i got to tell you, i love her bangs. >> i think they look fantastic. >>
